The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) announces temporary overnight lane and ramp closures and short-term rolling roadblocks on Route 3 and I-93 northbound and southbound at the Braintree Split on weeknights Sunday through Thursday night, starting Wednesday, Aug. 18 through Thursday, Sept. 9.
These lane closures will be implemented each evening between 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. the following morning and are necessary to allow crews and contractors to perform high mast lighting installation operations safely and effectively as part of the Braintree Split Lighting Improvements Project.
The full scope of work for this project includes removing the existing highway lighting and replacing with fifteen high mast lights and associated infrastructure.
Appropriate signage, law enforcement details, and messaging will be in place to guide drivers through the work area.
Drivers who are traveling through the affected areas should expect delays, reduce speed, and use caution.
All scheduled work is weather dependent and subject to change without notice.
